On Tuesday evening, November 13th at 7:00 p.m. in the Chapel, we will hold an Evensong prayer focusing on the blessings that are part of each of our lives. This will be a good time to take stock of all the positive things that are part of our lives. We shall not just acknowledge them, but also try to FEEL them during the prayer service so that their positive nature can become a more powerful part of our lives. It can be so easy to get caught up in the negatives of life. TV contributes to this. Yet, it is important to our well-being, our spiritual life and our overall health to render to our blessings all the power that they can contribute to us. Please consider taking some time out and jin us for prayer on the 13th. We'd love to see you.
